Description

Valerio Cosi - Heavy Electronic Pacific Rock

Valerio Cosi may be young at only 22, but his talent is undeniable. He may be mostly known for his exquisite saxophone playing, but this Italian wunderkind doesn’t stop there. Cosi composes strings of magic using all sorts of instrumentation and production tricks. "Heavy Electronic Pacific Rock" marks the first CD release in Cosi’s ever-expanding discography, and he saved the best for this, his most widely-available release to date.

"Heavy Electronic Pacific Rock" is a monster. Clocking in at nearly an hour in length, this kraut-infused ride takes Cosi's modus operandi of juxtaposing multitudes of ideas that generally seem at odds and pushes it to its outer limits. Using techniques and ideas often found in contemporary free-jazz, but blurring them and whitewashing them with buckets of noise and Eastern-inspired rhythms, it is clear Valerio is on a mission. His music is the spaced-out reincarnations of the ghosts of giants. It is an arsenal of unique sonic phrasings built to bend your mind.

This is Valerio Cosi at his peak as a performer, young as he is. "Heavy Electronic Pacific Rock" is his finest hour, his opus.

Reviews

"The best stuff is a little smoother than that, melting bits of semi-modality into flattened stretches of drone. But even those spots have this weird kind of incongruity, an odd sense that these things just shouldn't be put together, that I really dig. Maybe it's not so much shouldn't as usually aren't, which is kinda refreshing - even my fave recs of late don't offer anything so intriguingly off..." - Marc Masters, Noiseweek

"Deft performance on traditional musical instruments complemented by electronics, yet it’s a far cry from the dry and lifeless domain of electro-acoustic improvisation. Wandering, opulent, woozy songs with a broad array of instruments, but not at all free/freak-folk. The soulful wails and tortured squeals of a saxophone, yet by no means jazz. Droning, but not drone. Noisy, but not noise. Avant-garde, but not pretentious." - Tiny Mix Tapes
